Amir Khan only sees the historic undisputed bout between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk going one way.
This fight has been a long time in the making. Fury has held the WBC and Lineal titles for several years now, while Usyk has been in possession of the WBA, WBO and IBF belts ever since dethroning Anthony Joshua in 2019.
Usyk then defended against the same man a year later and more recently saw off the challenge of Daniel Dubois in August of this year.
Fury meanwhile has had easier defences against the likes of Derek Chisora and Dillian Whyte before almost slipping up against Francis Ngannou in a 10-round contest with the former UFC champion turned boxing novice back in October.
Speaking to Boxing Social, former champion Khan said Fury’s last showing would give Usyk a boost after the pair clashed at their first head to head press conference.
“I think Usyk has more confidence after seeing that last fight Tyson had against Ngannou but to be honest he has that style where he presents a problem to a proper boxers. He’s very unorthodox.”
Khan then came down on the side of Fury, citing his style and boxing skills as the difference between the two men.
“When it comes to it though I feel that Fury is just one step ahead of every fighter. His size makes a massive difference and I think going into that fight it will be a walk in the park for him. I don’t think he will knock Usyk out but I think it will be a good clean points win by five or six rounds.”
